We profiled the firm’s new TKTS booth in Times Square here at gbNYC earlier this week, but want to also point you to architects Perkins Eastman’s design for the $30 million Simons Center for Geometry and Physics on the campus of SUNY Stony Brook on Long Island. The 6-story, 39,000-square-foot building will rise between two older math and physics department buildings and support 35 faculty offices, conference rooms, and a 250-seat lecture hall.
URS will perform construction management services for the project and will also be responsible for the LEED certification process; the project is aiming for a Silver rating from USGBC. The Center is named for the James and Marilyn Simons Foundation, which made a $60 million gift to the school in 2007 that will also support the building’s ongoing operations moving forward. Construction should break ground sometime this spring and a September 2010 completion date is being targeted. Specific green design features and other information about the project team do not appear presently available.
